"Minute to Win It" goes to Germany

From the Hollywood Reporter, dies ist sehr gut:

NBC Universal and Elizabeth Murdoch's Shine have signed a deal that will see Shine's German division produce a local-language version of NBC's "Minute to Win It" format for German commercial broadcaster Sat.1.

The agreement marks the first international sale for the NBC show, which the U.S. Network recently renewed for a second season.

Sat.1 has commissioned five episodes of the German version of "Minute to Win It." The German show, whose title translates a "The Perfect Minute," will premiere in a two-hour primetime slot on Sat.1 April 30, 2010.

Shine Germany, based in Cologne, is also adapting the NBC Universal format "Perfect 10" for Sat.1.

As for our own U.S. version of Minute to Win It, did you notice some subtle changes in last night's episode? (4/7/10) Guy Fieri had some voice overs, I noticed.

And it appears as if the episodes have been re-edited - the episode description on TV Guide and similar television programming sites did not match the episode we saw.

I just saw today that the "game agent" / model, Ling, is missing from the main page of the Minute to Win It website. There have been no reports on why that may be.

Where's Ling?

More changes to come, I'm sure.

As for Wednesday's Minute to Win It network TV ratings:
FOX: "Human Target" (7.7 million viewers, 4.7/8)
CBS: "The New Adventures of Old Christine" (6.1 million, 4.0/7)/"Accidentally on Purpose" (6.2 million, 4.0/7)
NBC: "Minute to Win It" (5.9 million, 3.8/6)
ABC: "Modern Family" rerun (5.1 million, 3.3/6)/"The Middle" rerun (5.1 million, 3.3/6)
The CW: "America's Next Top Model" (3.35 million, 2.3/4)

18-49 leader: "Human Target" (2.2)
